Best Weddings of 2018


Jan 2, 2019

posted on:

I can’t believe 2019 is here. 2018 was such a great year for weddings. So many love stories told, so many new friends made and some of my favorite pictures. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the best wedding planners in the Quad Cities. We also traveled to Chicago and photographed an amazing wedding complete with a classic Rolls Royce in Lake Forest. There were still a few trends that I saw that still make my heart skip a beat. First up was the pale blushes, blues and purples. We also saw a lot of merlot and navy. I’m telling you, my brides have style! Take a peek at some of the best weddings of 2018!
